What is Horchata? 

Horchata is a Mexican drink made of rice milk, cinnamon, vanilla, and sugar. It’s a sweet and spicy drink that you can enjoy at a restaurant or in the comfort of your own home. There are dairy free versions of Horchata or other versions that contain real milk. Some options also contain nuts or added flavors like vanilla or coconut.
